To follow-up on my rant from last Friday about REI … First, I requested a check for my REI dividend shortly after I published the post. It turns out I could do that online, and the check should be mailed out in about four weeks. Then, on Saturday, Kathryn and I drove to Cabela’s in Glendale and bought everything that was on my REI list. In addition, Kathryn bought a lovely outdoor dress that was on clearance, so REI gave Cabela’s even more of our money. It seems to me someone at the Glendale Cabela’s ought to write a thank-you note to the manager of the Paradise Valley REI for putting up the gunbuster sign.
